Current State for October 21-22, 2017

Oct 20, 2017

It's homecoming weekend at Michigan State University. The first half of Current State is all about the green and white. Find out why there are new solar panels over several parking spaces; we catch up with YouTube sensation and alum Tyler Oakley; an outgoing senior and incoming freshman talk about campus life; and Al Martin updates us on the basketball season ahead. 


The second half of Current State deals with the #MeToo hashtag and why so many people are using it. Plus, how a Michigan city is trying to lure Amazon's second headquarters; the benefits of breastfeeding; how a Michigan man began compiling national holidays and celebrity birthdays way before Google and we'll talk to one of the actors from the Broadway musical based on the movie The Bodyguard.
